ASSEMBLY FLOOR ALERT: Call the Republicans on SB 866

Wednesday, June 1, 2022, 8:05 pm | Randy Thomasson
Republican Assemblyman Kevin Kiley of Rocklin drills SB 866’s author, Democrat Senator Scott Weiner, with numerous questions at the June 1 committee hearing.

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR ACTION STEPS

You want the bad news first, or the good news?

I’m going to give you the bad news first, because the good news is better. Today, the horrible anti-family bill, SB 866, which would eliminate parental consent for “vaccines” for children as young as 12 years old, passed the Democrat-controlled Assembly Judiciary Committee and was sent to the Assembly floor. This committee passage was expected — and “fixed” — by the Democrat majority, which fast-tracked this awful bill by referring it to only one committee, their most liberal one.

But the good news is 2 of 3 Republicans spoke against SB 866 in committee, and one Democrat — Brian Maienschein of north San Diego County — voted no. What’s more, Jordan Cunningham, a “moderate” Republican from San Luis Obispo County, voted no, instead of abstaining, which has been his habit on too many controversial bills.

Stop and realize this means we have a greater chance of defeating SB 866 on the Assembly floor. Remember, last Thursday, May 26, we lost by narrow margins on two medical tyranny bills (AB 2098 and AB 1797) and the infanticide bill (AB 2223) — because Republicans did not raise their voices to expose what these bills would really do.

What’s changed since then? First, outraged California conservatives have been “spanking” Republican members for not speaking last week (so has SaveCalifornia.com). Then, our May 30 alert on SB 866 urged you to tell the Judiciary Committee Republicans, “Speak out against SB 866 — expose this bad bill.” Thank you for your calls — because today, we saw two of the three Republicans — Kiley and Davies — do just that!

So yes, we can win this on the Assembly floor. Remember too that SB 866, which tramples your God-given parental rights, initially failed by 1 vote before passing by 1 vote. Being that close was historic — and should make us all pursue defeating this hellish bill!

Parental rights is definitely a crossover issue, which is why 2 Democrat state senators voted no and 8 Democrat state senators abstained. And we’ve got a better chance to win on the Assembly floor — if Republican assemblymembers speak out this time.

You can help Republicans speak up, as they should. Believe SB 866 can be stopped on the Assembly floor and you’ll make them believe it too!

Republican Assemblywoman Laurie Davies of Laguna Niguel told SB 866’s anti-parental-rights author. homosexual activist Scott Wiener, that her parents had medical consent for her, so did his parents, and parental rights exist to protect children.

Today’s June 1 committee hearing was a success in further “wounding” and “dragging down” SB 866. Again, the best success was the two Republicans energetically speaking out and challenging SB 866 author Scott Weiner of San Francisco.

Remember, with SB 866, parents won’t even know if their children are being manipulated, coerced, or bribed into baring their arm for a shot they don’t need and you don’t want. And how are 12-year-olds going to remember their medical history, and whether they’re susceptible to adverse reactions? And what if they have an adverse reaction — and the parent doesn’t know what caused it? SB 866 eliminates parental rights, at a time when parents are needed to provide “guardrails” against profit-motivated Big Pharma.

Talking points: “The age of 12 is too young for medical consent”

Why take action now? Simply put, on radical bills like these, Republicans’ voices are their own “secret weapon.” By speaking out strongly on the Assembly floor, they can actually pull away enough nervous Democrats to stop SB 866 in its tracks! If they had done so last week, we could have defeated medical tyranny and infanticide bills.

PLEASE TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION: Because SB 866 could come up for a vote as soon as the afternoon of Monday, June 6 on the floor of the California Assembly!

1. Call your own state assemblymember, whether they’re Republican or Democrat. Tell your Republican assemblymember you want him or her to “oppose and speak against and fight against SB 866 — don’t be silent on the Assembly floor!” Tell your Democrat assemblymember you want them to “Don’t attack parents — don’t eliminate parental rights on teen and pre-teen vaccinations. Children cannot give informed consent or be responsible for knowing their risks beforehand or dealing with problems after an injection. Oppose SB 866!” 
Find your own assemblymember’s website and office numbers here.

2. Leave anonymous voicemails (unless the assemblymember is yours) after hours Wednesday and Thursday 7pm to 8am for all 19 Assembly Republicans. Tell them: “Please speak against SB 866 on the Assembly floor. This horrible bill eliminates parental rights for children as young as 12 years old. Raise your microphone and speak up for parental rights and protecting children!”

SPECIAL REPORT: Why medical tyranny and infanticide bills passed

Friday, May 27, 2022, 12:05 pm | Randy Thomasson

If you haven’t heard yet, on May 26, the Democrats that rule the California State Assembly powered through Covid medical tyranny bills AB 2098 and AB 1797 and the infanticide legalization bill AB 2223.

AB 2098 revokes licenses of doctors that counsel patients against the “Covid vaccine”

AB 1797 puts Californians into a database, segregating them by “Covid vaccine” status

AB 2223 prohibits law enforcement from investigating infant deaths

That was the worst thing of all. But the second worst was zero Republicans spoke against any of these bad bills. All 19 of them refused to speak to expose these bills’ great harms.

And I have to tell you, based on other times this week that Assembly Republicans vigorously spoke out (such as on protecting Central Valley water), I believe these medical tyranny bills and infanticide bill could have been defeated if exposed in a verbal floor fight.

See the deceitful passage of AB 2223 where nobody spoke to expose its true effect

If you were in this fight, you have my sincere thanks and admiration for calling Sacramento in an effort to stop these horrific bills. We had to try, because last year a vaccine passport bill and a forced jab bill were pulled for lack of support. And this year, several Covid tyranny bills have already been dropped by their authors.

The votes
Despite no Assembly floor fight exposing how bad these 3 bills are, the initial votes were still close. With our goal of denying these bills a majority vote (41 yes votes), we successfully pulled off more than a dozen Democrats; so AB 2098 was declared “passed” by just 5 votes, AB 1797 by only 2 votes, and AB 2223 by 4 votes). However, by the end of the session, votes had changed, both sides coalesced, and vote disparities increased.

See the final votes (members are allowed to change their votes by the end of the session as long as they don’t change whether the bill passed or not): AB 2098 | AB 1797 | AB 2223

The future
At this point, the only way I see to defeat these 3 awful bills is IF they’re amended in the State Senate, are sent back to the Assembly floor for concurrence votes — but this time, Republicans lovingly raise their microphones to shockingly expose and defeat these bills.

However, if AB 2098, AB 1797, and AB 2223 pass the entire California Legislature in August, and are signed by Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom, what then? I strongly believe there should be constitutional lawsuits filed against them all. Here’s why:

AB 2098 squashing medical independence on the “Covid vaccine” is an unconstitutional regulation of speech. By targeting doctors for Covid-related “misinformation or disinformation,” AB 2098 unconstitutionally targets professional speech. As the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals noted in Pickup v. Brown (2013), “…doctor-patient communications about medical treatment receive substantial First Amendment protection.” 

The appellate court also stated, “where a professional is engaged in a public dialogue, First Amendment protection is at its greatest. Thus, for example, a doctor who publicly advocates a treatment that the medical establishment considers outside the mainstream, or even dangerous, is entitled to robust protection under the First Amendment—just as any person is.” 

The author of AB 2098 knows his bill might be unconstitutional: On April 20, he amended AB 2098 to make its provisions “severable … if any provision of this act or its application is held invalid.”

AB 1797 segregating Californians by vaccine status, race and ethnicity, violates Californians’ privacy rights by eliminating confidentiality. 
By requiring, as the Legislative Counsel’s Digest of AB 1797 describes, “health care providers and other agencies, including schools, childcare facilities, family childcare homes, and county human services agencies to disclose the specified immunization information,” this bill violates the constitutional privacy rights of many Californians.

In 1972, California voters overwhelmingly added “privacy” to the list of “inalienable rights” guaranteed by Article 1, Section 1 of the California Constitution. In 1975, the California Supreme Court, in White v. Davis, relied on California’s newly-affirmed constitutional right of privacy to prevent police officers from posing as college students and gathering intelligence on what is said in the classroom when the intelligence gathered bore no relation to any suspected illegal activity.

As the court wrote: Moreover, the surveillance alleged in the complaint also constitutes a prima facie violation of the explicit “right of privacy” recently added to our state Constitution. As we point out, a principal aim of the constitutional provision is to limit the infringement upon personal privacy arising from the government’s increasing collection and retention of data relating to all facets of an individual’s life. 

By violating Californians’ medical privacy – in the classroom and otherwise – AB 1797 is in direct conflict with the California Constitution.

AB 2223 robs already-born babies of their constitutional guarantee of equal protection of the laws. 
Since this isn’t about abortion, but infanticide — which is murder — we can foresee a federal constitutional lawsuit demanding the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee that “nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” If should be tried, if there’s indeed a pro-life majority at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Thank you again for fighting these awful bills through your phone calls or by donating to SaveCalifornia.com. We had to try, and I’m grateful you did your part. But most Assembly Democrats shirked their constitutional pledges and all the Republicans went mute.

Open your mouth for the speechless,
In the cause of all who are appointed to die.

If you faint in the day of adversity,
Your strength is small.
Deliver those who are drawn toward death,
And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.
Proverbs 24:10-11

Dems’ anti-parent bill fails by 1 vote, then passes by 1 vote

Thursday, May 12, 2022, 12:35 pm | Randy Thomasson

May 29, 2022 update: The blatantly anti-family bill, SB 866, which would lower the age of “consent” to age 12 for any and all vaccines, pushing parents completely out of the picture, is scheduled for a Wednesday, June 1 8:30am hearing. Please call the members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee to urge them to “Oppose the anti-parent bill, SB 866.” And if you’re within driving distance of Sacramento, please try to attend and speak at the hearing in Room 447 of the State Capitol Building. Thank you!

Good news — SB 866, eliminating parental rights and informed consent for teen and pre-teen “shots” — has been severely wounded on the Senate floor.

Like its May 5 emergency committee hearing, SB 866 was hurried to a May 12 Senate floor vote because your Democrat rulers know their medical tyranny agenda is in trouble.

After 4 Democrat senators stood and spoke lies, and 4 Republican senators stood and spoke truth, the vote was taken. And it was so close, it was nearly historic!

Remember, the California State Senate has 40 members, so a majority vote to pass bills requires 21 votes. Achieving this is usually easy for the New Communist Democrats, who hold 31 seats, while Republicans hold only nine seats.

However, since parental rights is a “swing issue,” and since Covid has burned itself out, and because of the mini-flood of opposition phone calls to the deciding votes, and because this is an election year, the first vote was 20 yes, 7 no, and 12 abstentions. The bill was failing by one vote! But then the announcement came: “Call the absent members”; a minute later, an arm was twisted, and Democrat Monique Limón of Santa Barbara switched from abstaining to voting yes to supply the 21st vote to pass this “dog of a bill.”

Now, winning by 1 vote only to lose by 1 vote is still good news — because so many Senate Democrats abstaining on SB 866 means even more Assembly Democrats won’t touch this anti-parent bill.

This fact — plus excellent speaking on the floor by pro-family Republicans Jim Nielsen, Andreas Borgeas, Melissa Melendez, and Rosilicie Ochoa Bogh — means SB 866 is in deep trouble on the State Assembly floor (where it will likely arrive this summer).

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Senate floor alert. Now please call the Assembly floor to oppose medical tyranny and infanticide bills. Fighting these three Assembly bills now will give us a better chance to defeat SB 866 this summer.
